    unmarked swords

    A dealer lists a sword as totally unmarked indicating it was never issued to a regiment. I know next to nothing about sword making but wouldn't it be easer to stamp the blade before the metal was hardened? At least with the manufacturers name?

    Sounds a reasonable assumption to me.

    Hi Rob,

    Agree with Robert, as I have an 1821 pattern British heavy cavalry officer's sword with no markings whatsoever.
